And Gold it is ! Every year, the Popai Awards reward the best retail marketing solutions. This year the launch of the Galaxy Note 9 using KiOne in 7 countries, in partnership with Cheil France, has been granted the top award.
In front of a qualified public of worldwide device manufacturers and telecom operators, KiOne didn’t fail to impress at Orange booth when it showcased a key application from Orange.
For Christophe and myself, between the discoveries of the beginnings of the 5G and those stunning curved screens like the Samsung Fold or Huawei Mate X, it was a perfect opportunity to meet the players of our market and continue our international deployment.
Maddy Keynote event, organized by Maddyness, is an Innovation Summit that brings together more than 7,000 Innovation players, all here to debate, understand, analyze and experience what our future should look like. Key Infuser was selected with other start-ups to introduce KiOne robots. Key accounts like EDF, Auchan, BPCE and many others have discovered KiOne. Participation in this event demonstrates that Key Infuser’s brand awareness is growing and that our technology is recognized as highly innovative and disruptive by innovation specialists.
And we’re back, two years after starting our business for real at the CES. In the mean-time KiOne had travelled quite a few miles, with a presence in no less than 7 countries. Perfect timing to come back to the Eureka Park with two novelties: a smart KiOne which has fully grasped the art of writing, and our last innovation, “KiBox”.
KiBox is meant for retail agencies with not only its ability to be integrated in any type of furniture, but also its numerous peripherals leaving room to plenty of imagination (controlled via a tablet, synchronization with other objects etc)
The robots have once more enlightened the day of many visitors while guiding them to the use of the products they were demonstrating.
Reseau Entreprendre is a network composed of 14 000 CEOs with a common vow : a promise to help, to support the new ones to be successful.
Our objective is simple : sustain the robot’s project and reach profitability.
Associated with the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in Orange stores, our robot KiOne has a new super power: writing.
The big plus of the Galaxy Note 9 is its stylus. What can be done with it is definitively what the robot must highlight.
Lidwine Martinot, our CTO, and the R & D team have developed some magic formulas: a hint of artificial intelligence for calibration, some style and curves and “voilà”, a robot ready to show the Live Message, the screen sharing and the cropping.
Slovakia, Romania, Belgium, Poland, Luxembourg, Spain and France welcome in Orange stores these unique robots eager to share their Galaxy Note 9 experiences.
Following naturally relationship with local Orange entities, Key Infuser just joins Woman Start program by Orange Fab and reaches international levels, in footsteps of startups like Famoco, Klaxoon, Bubbles, etc .
Orange gives us access to their experts to support Key Infuser’s growth and to put in place a successful relationship with Orange BUs and its partners.
Beyond the launch event and the emulating meeting with other determined women entrepreneurs and Marie-Noëlle Jégo-Laveissière, Director of Technology and Innovation Orange, the operational follows up happens now: concrete actions are put in place from the first week of support.
Key Infuser is member of CRI (see 2018-06-15 article) and has been invited by POPAI to participate to a conference about “How to personalize you customer’s experience in hair dresser’s and beauty salons ?”
This invitation demonstrates recognition of Key Infuser’s expertise by a well known organization like POPAI. It was an opportunity for Key Infuser to promote its offer among a new segment : cosmetics and beauty industry.
Key Infuser robots were visible on Credit Agricole booth for the Paris Retail Week event. Our partnership with Crédit Agricole carries on ; we have developped a specific plateform with 2 robots to promote a new payment app from CA-PS (Crédit Agricole Payment Services).
The 2 robots received much interest and helped CA-PS staff promoting their applications.
